We visit Jim and Donna every year for the fishing opener. It is a great time. The fishing is good, and the hosts helpful. Can't wait to go back. It is a very well run campground and very well maintained. Yes there are rules just like any other resort but they are for everybody

Room Tip: we brought a camper

We just got back from a week stay at Schmidt's Landing. Donna and Jim were excellent hosts and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The fisher people in our foursome were out every day in the boat that was provided in our package and, following Jim's advice on where to fish, caught a bunch. I mainly stayed around the cabin and on the grounds and read, but did go out a couple of times and caught 5 fish on my own. The cabins have all been completely remodeled, were clean and well maintained. Since they make it very clear in their brochure that if you are looking for a place to have a wild party, look elsewhere, it was a very peaceful environment and beautiful setting. We would highly recommend this resort.

I have been coming to Big Stone for 30 years. I have stayed w/ Jim and Donna around 13 of those years (2 this year). This was my first trip for my 10 year old son and it was an excellent one! The rooms have all been redone and the showers are great now! They put a lot of money into each of the rooms and they look fantastic. Not a place I would take my significant other because the bugs would swallow her whole but a wonderful fishing lodge. Caught a ton of fish and look forward to spring when I will return once again. Thanks Jim and Donna for making the memories fantastic.

We will never go back to Schmidts again.
Owners are very rude and overbearing.
Unblieveable!
Family members came to visit for about an hour, owners wouldnt let them stay even though we offered to pay $10 per person fee. What a sham.
Bigstone lake is the only thing they have going for them.

Room Tip: Go to a different resort!

We just returned from a week long stay with our children and Grandchildren. We rented 3 suites and had a total of 9 people in our party. Schmidts Landing is a fabulous place for a family vacation. We were having so much fun we stayed 2 extra days longer than we had originally booked. The units are clean and updated, the ground are very well maintained and Jim and Donna go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and are enjoying your stay. We caught more than enough fish, enjoyed the lake and water recreation, and toured the area. The grandkids used the kayaks and the swimming beach was right in front of our unit so we could keep an eye on them. Continental breakfast (complimentary) with hot waffles for the kids and Jim cooks up hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill for all guests on Sunday. One of the most enjoyable family vacations we have had. Something for everyone. Highly recommend and we are certainly planning on going back next year and taking some more people with us.

Room Tip: The suites were all remodeled last year and include a kitchen with all amenities. All that you need to bring are your towels.
